The Erasing 76 Crimes blog last week reached a milestone: More than 2.5 million individual readers have viewed the blog’s articles. Total article views: More than 4 million.
As those figures keep rising, a more important figure is one that’s slowly falling: The number of nations with anti-gay laws has dropped from about 76 in 2012, when this blog was named and launched, to about 73 nations today.
As additional nations such as Botswana and Kenya consider overturning their anti-homosexuality laws, this blog has adjusted the description of its focus. No longer is the blog described as focusing on “the human toll of 76 countries’ anti-gay laws.” Now the focus is “the human toll of 70+ countries’ anti-gay laws.”
We look forward to the day when the toll of homophobia is reduced to zero and there’s nothing left for this blog to write about.
These lists are some of the blog’s most popular articles:
- 73 countries where homosexuality is illegal
- 1000s who died in anti-gay, anti-trans attacks (updates)
- 100s are in prison for being gay
- 13 nations have death penalty for gay sex; 5 carry it out
- 21 varieties of traditional African homosexuality
- 35 Commonwealth nations have laws against gay sex
